Jewish Discovery Zone
Join us for another year of this beloved program led by Treasure Cohen, Jewish family educator. Treasure has served as Director of Family and Community Education at the Jewish Education Association of MetroWest, NJ for many years. Thirty years ago, as a young parent, she and her husband, Rich, developed Shabbat and holiday services for young children and their families at Congregation Beth El in South Orange, NJ, and she continues to lead services and train other leaders today. Treasure will help us learn about and celebrate Jewish holidays and traditions through songs, stories and crafts. Meet other families, enjoy snacks and supper and have a blast! For children ages 3-7 and their families. $15/child; adults are free.
